This exciting new course was run by two of the Garden Organic’s Food for Life Partnership education team – Ruth Hepworth and Malcolm Smith.
The day covered how to approach schools; how to plan with schools for growing throughout the school year; and how to do presentations and assemblies.
There were plenty of activities and practical tasks for everyone to share; and many useful discussions. We’re looking forward to hearing how volunteers get on via their activity logs…
Course feedback included:
“A very stimulating session…”
“Today has given me lots of enthusiasm…”
“I will now deliver better projects for the schools that I am involved with”.
The next schools training session is the 8 October 2011 – although it’s already full! But if you’re a Master Gardener or Master Composter co-ordinator or volunteer, please click here to let us know you’re interested.
